    Pros

    Staff was pleasant and very helpful. It was a lot of fun working there. Especially taking pictures for new customers and repeat customers.

    Cons

    Currently out of business and you could tell things were going downhill. They started putting negative pressure on their employees. I assume it was to stay afloat.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Work life balance important to management. Unlimited growth great place to learn the latest and greatest technology. Caring professional co-workers.

    Cons

    Only con is you can get locked into a small portion of IT, ex. only backup software, and end up not being well rounded if you ever needed to work for a smaller company.

    Advice to Management

    If possible spend more time with IT staff.

    Pros

    Great commission pay if you make a sale, plenty of hours to work, other opportunities to make money,

    Cons

    work and life balance don't exist, always switching store managers, the company keeps switch commission pay structure, can't get the company on the same page to take care a single customer

    Advice to Management

    Get the company on the same page about issues, cause the new cultural belief isn't working and nobody want to own it

    Pros

    The hours are flexible and there are a lot of them available, so I was able to pick hours to work around school and determine a schedule that was suitable for my life.

    Cons

    The biggest con was that the pay was minimum wage and the only way to add more to your paycheck was to get credit applications. With the economy not doing so well, nobody wanted another credit card to keep track of.

    Pros

    As long as the store managers are cooperative and friendly its a great place to work if you do not plan on living off the salary.

    Cons

    Corporate is constantly changing the commission rates so its harder to make money.

    Advice to Management

    More advertising help to bring in more customers instead of relying on the same aging customer base.
